Grilled Garlic Herb Pork Loin
The heat is finally starting to break a little the last few days. And by that I mean it has been between 102-105 degrees and not the horrific 112+ of last weekend! With temps that high things tend to slow down in the casa kitchen.
We have been eating plenty of salads with amazing homemade toppers like my Creamy Honey Lime Dressing and sandwiches galore. But that gets old after a while and the casa crew is all about meat and potatoes.
So we decided to fire up the grill, which is a great go-to option in summer months when you want your kitchen to stay as cool as possible, and made this Grilled Garlic Herb Pork Loin. You know I am all about easy one-pan/pot meals and that can extend to the grill too!
Simply wrap a flavorful, already-seasoned Smithfield Garlic & Herb Loin Filet with baby new potatoes, fresh green beans and red bell pepper in foil for a delicious a one-foil-packet meal!
Be sure to cut your veggies into same sized pieces so they cook evenly.
Since the potatoes need a little more heat to cook I placed them around the pork loin so they would be in more direct contact with the grill; this also allows them to soak up the flavorful juices from the marinated pork.
The green beans and bell pepper strips went over the top of the pork to help them stay tender crisp while grilling. Because do you really like your green beans mushy?
I am a big fan of double wrapping my foil packets. If you have ever had one break open on the grill you understand where I am coming from! I wrap the first layer of foil nice and snug around the ingredients to keep everything close together.
Oh, don’t forget to drizzle your veggies with a little canola oil, then lightly salt and pepper. The flavors from the pork will do the rest!
The outer foil layer is a little looser to allow heat to circulate around the inner packet.
Once it is all wrapped up simply cook on the grill for 30-40 minutes until done. I love how easy it is because Smithfield® has done all the work for you by marinading their fresh, 100% pork products. If you don’t have a barbecue or grill, I would recommend you to have a look at the environmentally friendly pellet grills from Grilling Zen. They review different grills, helping you to find the best one for you.
Check your local Walmart store for a variety of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork flavors. You can grill them whole, or slice into medallions or chops then grill.
Be sure to visit the Smithfield Hog Wild Throwdown page for grilling tips and tricks, recipe ideas and a fun contest involving Smithfield® Fresh Pork products!
I love that the leftovers make a great salad or tacos the next day too! I have a Sweet and Sour Vinaigrette that would go great with our leftover pork in an Asian inspired salad.
